Anyway, the verse of note was 1 Samuel 24:3 "He (Saul) came to some sheep pens along the road. There was a cave there and Saul went in to relieve himself. David and his men were huddled far back in the same cave." YES, you read correct. On his way to find his enemy David, King Saul had to take a pit stop and use the bathroom! He "had to go"! Bwahahahahaha! The entire class was atwitter as we became middle scholars ourselves. How had I never heard this verse?!?!?!
Last night, Mike and I thought we'd entertain the boys at dinner with our discovery. We built it up as best we could without giving it away. We were so ready to share the Holy Book's potty humor. But to our ASTONISHMENT, J knew all about it! He knew the whole story! Saul... the cave... the "relief"... David and his men hiding in the back... how David had the opportunity to kill Saul but chose not to. He knew the whole thing! Oh. my. word!
After we got over that (second) shocking revelation, Mike, the boys and I did have a big ol' knee slap. We howled with laughter as S read the passage. J got his Bible out where it said Saul "had to go to the bathroom". Of course we giggled some more at that translation.
But the funniest part was J's response when I asked him how on Earth he knew this random story. His response: "It's from the Bible, Mom. You should read it!"
